Happy three-day weekend, folks! Well, for some. Our offices are closed this Monday, so things are a little quiet around here today. That’s not gonna stop our weekly music sampler, though! And we’ve got the perfect one to last you all the way ‘till next Tuesday.
Kicking the weekend off right, Exodus premiered their upcoming full length today, and it does not disappoint. Get ready to be slammed up against the wall with this one: right out of the ringer, the dudes go buck-wild Metal style. Following suit, Inter Arma’s out with a full album stream full of anthemic hard Rock, backing the ferocious Metal vocals.
As for tracks, we’ve got plenty of those this week! Get started with PROM’s latest, a song that’ll have you reminiscing of the olden, golden days of youth and… maybe even your first prom night. Switch from the Electro-Pop to something more Acoustic. Actually, totally Acoustic. It’s State Champs with a sweet little guitar-only ditty for all you Alt-Rock lovers. There’s also a free downloadable track from your fave club DJ Dave Luxe and a whirlwind of Garage Rock that’ll eat you up and spit you right back out faster than you can say Bad Cop, the actual talent behind the jam.
Now, to really get you out of the office and well on your way, there are FOUR fantabulous music videos for your viewing pleasure. The Budos Band give you a B&W teaser of the new album; some breakout WWE wrestlers make their way into an Army of the Pharaohs video; the dapper lookin’ gents of Elliott Brood sit down for a sweet-sounding acoustic session; and Afrikan Boy takes to the streets for an ode to YAM.
There it is, Freeloaders! All the music you need to get you through the weekend. Happy Columbus Day!
